Dear Village Folks:
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation as the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson deals with COVID-19.
Village Hall Office doors will remain closed through Friday, May 1. Village employees are continuing to provide essential services and conduct village business, onsite and remotely. Please contact us at 534-4200 or [email protected] for questions regarding Village business. You may visit our website at www.cornwall-on-hudson.org.
The spring bulk cleanup will begin the week of Monday, May 18. The Village election has been delayed until June; we will be getting further guidance on the election next week. The annual re-organization meeting will take place after the election; the village is holding over all current officers, including trustees and appointed officials, until then.
Lots of people are enjoying Donahue Memorial Park at Cornwall Landing. Others are hiking Storm King Mountain. The Esty & Hellie Stowell Trailhead for Storm King Mountain is located where Hudson Avenue becomes Bayview Avenue (Route 218). There’s plenty of parking.
More to do: Cornwall Public Library now subscribes to Hoopla, a video streaming service that provides access to hundreds of thousands of digital Items for free with a Cornwall Library card. The Arts Mid-Hudson website offers many virtual events, exhibits and resources.
We are grateful to our health professionals and first responders. Let’s also remember to thank our truckers, news reporters and radio DJs.
Police Chief Steve Dixon has been distributing flyers reminding people to keep distancing. And the Centers for Disease Control is now recommending wearing masks when we go out. As always, let’s deposit trash in their proper receptacles.
Cornwall-on-Hudson is a vibrant community. Let’s keep it so by being in touch with our families, friends and neighbors during this challenging time.

The Village is handling COVID-19 well. We are fortunate to have caring residents and dedicated employees. Contact us at 534-4200 or [email protected] for Village business.
My thanks to Storm King Fire Engine Company for helping the Easter Bunny tour the Village on Easter Sunday - for making us smile and lifting our spirits. The teachers and staff at Cornwall-on-Hudson Elementary are tentatively planning to have a car parade throughout the Village at 2:30 Friday, April 24.
In case you haven’t heard, St. Thomas and the Cornwall Presbyterian Church in the Village, and other churches in the Town of Cornwall, are holding services online.
Following the installation of the new gas lines, repairs to Hudson Street will begin Monday, April 20. Be aware of changes in traffic patterns and parking.
We still don’t know when the Village election, originally scheduled for March 18, will be held. As I mentioned last week, the annual re-organization meeting, which generally occurs the first Monday in April, must take place after the election. Until then the Village is holding over all current officials, both elected and appointed.
The Village Board will hold its monthly Business Meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, April 20, a virtual meeting, as it did its March 23 meeting. The public may watch and speak during public hearing and public comment segments. Directions on how to participate will be available through the Village’s Facebook page and website (www.cornwall-on-hudson.org). I ask that if you do wish to speak, please be brief and understand the unusual format. And remember, you can always call or email me.
Of course, health professionals and first responders are always on our minds in times like this and we thank them for their sacrifices. Let’s also be grateful to our farmers, farmworkers and food preparers.
As you have probably heard, Governor Cuomo has issued an executive order that we must wear masks in public when are unable to maintain the distance of six feet. And he has extended the pause button until Friday, May 15.
So, let’s keep on keeping on. Let’s remember our families, friends and neighbors and lend a hand, or an ear, during these tough times.
I want to thank you all for your patience and cooperation as we cope with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Village Hall Office doors are closed and will continue to remain closed until Friday, April 10, 2020, at which time we’ll determine if it is safe to open. We are staggering hours to provide Village services and conduct Village business.
Please continue to pay bills through the dropbox marked BILLS on the parking lot side of Village Hall to limit interaction between residents and village employees. If you have questions about Village business, please contact us at 534-4200 or [email protected]
Senior citizens may wish to take advantage of Safe Seniors, an assistance program provided by the Village Police Department. See link.
If you’d like to volunteer, the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, right here in the Village at 195 Hudson Street, is always looking for volunteers, now more than ever. To volunteer, check the website: www.regionalfoodbank.net/volunteer/.
Please follow the guidelines of the Center for Disease Control regarding hygiene and isolating. Let’s take care of ourselves, families and neighbors. In addition to our health professionals and first responders, let’s be grateful for our Village public works, water and clerical employees.
It’s good to see so many people walking, jogging and bicycling. Enjoy Donahue Memorial Park and the Village’s other parks. Let’s continue to support our local restaurants by ordering food to take out.
The Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson is a strong community. Let’s help one another get through this challenging time. Stay healthy!
Brendan G. Coyne, Mayor
The New York Conference of Mayors has launched a public education campaign to defend property taxpayers from tax shifts that may be pushed from the state onto cities and Villages. This campaign will deliver a unified message through a new NYCOM-designed single-issue Web site, https://www.nycom.org/. State and local officials, the media and the public will be able to utilize this site to understand the direct connection between state actions - e.g., state aid and state mandates - and New York's real property tax burden.
Local officials and private citizens will also be able to use the Web site to deliver this message directly to state leaders, legislators and opinion-makers.
